I've applied all of this, in the interest of getting things back into

What I want to know 'tho, is why is there still the 'reg base' being
either here or there.  How hard would it be to always have it at the
'other' location?  Or, was it decided that it was best to allow this to
end up anywhere?

Also, I would really like to see the if/else of PPCBoot go away in favor
of something like parsing PPCBoot, if it exists, and if not setting up
things the 'other' way.  ie:
platform_init(...) {
  if (r3 == ppcboot)

find_things_out() {
  bd_t.memsize = gt64260_find_end_of_memory();

IOW, if we don't have PPCBoot and it's 'bd_t', fill it out.[1]
